Trades and Crafts in Medieval Manuscripts
    by Patricia Basing

Many of the scenes reproduced in this superbly illustrated book are works of art in their own right; others are taken from manuscripts that are famous for the very high quality of their illumination. Patricia Basing, a curator in The British Library's department of manuscripts, provides a rich commentary, full of interesting observations that relate each picture to its historical context, explore the connections between the illustrations and text, and give an account of the general background of manuscript production in medieval times.
